I can live on bridge pickup only. So, not really a Tele.
Broadcaster pickup, like you have.
Once I traded out the stock MIM ceramics for the Broadcaster/TT set, I have been so happy everywhere on my tele. I could live on one or the other for lengthy periods of time, but I would always want both.
I'm a mostly neck and neck/bridge player.
I find the purely bridge pickup to be too ice-pick bright for my tastes.
Mostly bridge. Same with my Les Paul.
I lived on the bridge for the first few decades I played my Tele. I also did not know there was a tone knob on it. Now that I'm middle aged, I live on the middle position, tone rolled back a smidge.
Well I have four Esquires and they all got old Fender pickups, two rewound by Fralin and two stock coils.
Basic stuff, 6.6k- 7.3k of 42awg wire, pretty bright and clear.
I use the neck pickup on any guitar 90% of the time
My go to is a partscaster with Bootstrap Extra Crispy pickups. Wired 4 way. I’m usually on my bridge. Or both in series.
Been an Esquire guy since 1968 ! I do have a Tele though .
Bridge only for me. It is just what I like. I make do if I want a middle position sound.
I used to live there, although recently I bought a Vintera 70s Custom and replaced the stock WRHB with a CuNiFe one: the moddle position is something really special, so on the Custom I mostly live in the middle.
99% in the bridge pickup!!
sometimes I use the neck.. but very rarely! HAHAHa..
I sometimes use neck pup w/tone rolled off for "Wooden Ships" sound.
Also, a little known secret .. use neck pup w/tone wide open and strum in the area where neck joins the body. This creates a mock "acoustic guitar" vibe.
I’m on the bridge probably 95% of the time
Neck 70%, middle 20%,, bridge 10%, and that's on all my teles, just love the neck pickup
Esquire for me, thanks.
I live on the bridge pickup 99% of the time no matter what guitar I’m playing. I honestly think that where both teles and Les Pauls are concerned, I could get by just fine with nothing but a bridge pickup and a volume knob forever.
Ah, you have the guitar back. Did you tell us about them? I miss stuff cos of time zone differences.
Oh yeah, and probably 60/40 favouring the neck.
Where I play (church), I’m on the bridge of my Tele most of the time just to cut through the mix. For more atmospheric stuff, I’m on the neck or middle.
I'm almost always on the bridge for both lead and rhythm work. Just use the tone knob to get the amount of warmth or brightness I want. I find anytime I play in the other pickup positions it just disappears in the mix. Nothing cuts through like a Tele bridge pickup.
